An outfit for a day at the beach

The weather is heating up, and I'm looking forward to a day at the beach to have a picnic, read, and just listen to the ocean. Here's what I would take with me...

A tee and a knit pencil skirt

Sunglasses: Anthro (similar)
 Tee: Uniqlo (similar, similar)
Necklace: Madewell
Skirt: Madewell (similar)
Boots: Madewell (similar)

On Thursday, Matt and I went to The Huntington Gardens in Pasadena. Every first Thursday of the month, they have a free day, and we got tickets! It was magical. There are museums and lots of different parks you can go to - for example, this one was the Desert Park. It reminded me of home- good old Arizona. I also liked the Rose Garden and the Japanese Garden. I'll probably post more pictures later this week.  This outfit was perfect for a warm day exploring in the sunshine (okay, maybe sneakers would have been more perfect for the walking, but these boots were comfortable enough!).

My Birthday Wishlist

Because a girl can dream, right? 

1. Warby Parker Percey Eyeglasses: Warby Parker is my favorite and I'm loving rounder frames lately.
2. See by Chloe Perfume: Smells so fresh and the bottle is beautiful.
3. Madewell Kensington Satchel in black: Classic. The perfect black bag.
4. Catbird The Tiniest Ring, Emerald: So dainty. Emerald is my birthstone!
5. Madewell Lora Sandal: The perfect summer sandal.
6. The Flower Recipe Book: Because I just discovered the LA Flower Market and I am obsessed.

Also on my list:

Leather and polka dots

Jacket: Madewell (similar)
Tee: Madewell (similar here and here)
Pants: Uniqlo (similar)
Shoes: Target 

Remember that post I did about leather jackets a few weeks ago? Well... I chose the "splurge" option (...although I did have a significant employee discount). I figured it would be worth it to spend a little more money on something that would (1) go with everything and (2) last forever. I've been wearing it nonstop since I got it and now I don't really know how I ever lived without it. I like to pair it with either black pants (for a sleeker look) or light denim boyfriend jeans (for a more casual look). Definitely a worthy investment piece.
